Service is an integral part of the way we practice our faith at St. Peter’s.
Members of St. Peter’s are active both within our church community as well as in the wider community.
There are many ways to serve within St. Peter’s. Many newcomers find that joining one of our hospitality teams to prepare food for Coffee Hourafter church offers a fun, low threshold way to enter into the serving community and meet new people
Others serve as acolytes or readers in the liturgy, on the Vestry (parish council) or another ministry team, or by helping out at one of our annual events like the Big Take Out or Holiday Craft Fair.
There are also opportunities for serving together outside of church walls, such as helping to prepare food for the Lord’s Table, our ministry of sharing food with people on the streets, helping to organize with other people of faith for direct actions, volunteering at the Food Bank at St. Mary’s, or partnering with nearby Bailey Gatzert Elementary.
Many members of the St. Peter’s are already committed to serving our city and the world through professions such as social workers, community organizers, teachers, and immigration attorneys. After a long week, what St. Peter’s also offers is a place of Sabbath rest and renewal, and a community in which to make meaning of their work in light of their faith.
If interested in serving, please contact Deacon Polly Shigaki.
